How can I be certain that all funds would be spent as promised?

The City is committed to transparency and responsible fiscal stewardship. A potential sales tax measure would be subject to strict accountability requirements to ensure the proper use of funds, including:

  • No funds could be taken away by the State or used for other purposes.
  • A clear system of accountability would be required, including an independent citizen oversight committee and annual reports to ensure that all money is spent properly.
  • All funds raised by a sales tax measure would only be used to support and benefit Murrieta.
